Feds And Denver Police Conduct Large Raids On Marijuana Gardens

It’s not that often that I write articles about raids and busts. I have always felt that doing so breaks my soul a bit, because I don’t like highlighting the work of the opposition. But the raids in Denver, Colorado yesterday were so large, and could potentially become a public policy issue, that I felt it was worth covering. Apparently, the raids were a coordinated effort between the federal government, and the local police in Denver. It is alleged that the gardens that were raided were potentially part of a [...]

Will The Marijuana Industry Be Bigger Than The NFL By 2020?

The National Football League (NFL) is one of the biggest industries in America. The owners make hundreds of millions of dollars a year, and many of the players make tens of millions of dollars a year. The NFL and it’s teams employee a lot of people, boost the local economies in the areas they are in, and garner very lucrative TV deals. So it’s very significant when someone suggests that the marijuana industry could get bigger than the NFL by 2020, which is the case in a recent Washington Post [...]

Marijuana Stores And Dispensaries Get ATM Accounts Shut Down

Less and less Americans use cash. I used to live an ‘all cash’ lifestyle, but once I learned about the convenience of using a debit card, I quit stuffing my wallet full of cash when I would go out. If I need cash, I just hit up an ATM, which are everywhere these days. Unfortunately, this will no longer be an option at hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries and recreational marijuana stores, as their ATM accounts have been abruptly halted. Per Marijuana Business Daily: Hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries and [...]

Colorado Health Authorities Wanted To Ban Marijuana Edibles

Consuming marijuana edibles is much healthier than smoking marijuana. However, marijuana edibles have become the new villain in recent reefer madness campaigns. Maureen Dowd is partly to blame, after she had a bad experience when she couldn’t handle her marijuana edible experience. Bad parents are to blame too, as a handful of kids have had to go to a Denver hospital after getting their hands on marijuana edibles (something which occurs whether marijuana is legal or not by the way). Stories like that resulted in the Colorado Department of Public Health and [...]

Medical Marijuana Inc Files Huge Lawsuit Against Other Cannabis Companies

The marijuana industry can be a shady place at times, which is something that I’ve stated over and over. There are more ‘snake oil salesmen’ in the marijuana industry right now than I can stand. There are also more haters in the industry that I think there is in any other industry. People, for various reasons, want to throw other people under the bus, stab people in the back, or in a lot of cases, want to blatantly rip off or bash other people in the industry to try to [...]

How Much Money Does A Seattle Marijuana Store Make In A Day?

Legal recreational marijuana sales started in Washington near the beginning of July. However, until very recently, there was only one legal recreational marijuana store in Washington’s largest city of Seattle. There are now two stores in Seattle, with hopefully more opening sooner than later. The Seattle marijuana market consumer base is by far the largest in the state, and that translates to enormous sales revenues. How much does a Seattle marijuana store make in a day? Per Capitol Hill Seattle: Anybody who thinks Washington’s I-502 pot business is fun and [...]

Advanced Cannabis Solutions Purchases Bank Location In Denver

The Bank Facility Purchased By Advanced Cannabis Solutions Will Be Called ‘The Greenhouse’ And Will Eventually Serve As A Full Service Bank For The Cannabis Industry In the not too distant future, the cannabis industry will be allowed to bank like any other industry without obstacles. At least that’s my hope. But I don’t think that’s too bold of a prediction considering just how much money the cannabis industry brings in. There are already some cannabis businesses using banks, but there are many, many restrictions involved, and more bank accounts [...]
